About BITool

BITool (a tool for data analytics and business intelligence) has been implemented within the project BG161PO003-1.1.06-0023-C0001 "Analysing and identifying dependencies in big data repositories - application for economic and technological analyses" (2012–2015), funded by the Operational Programme "Development of the Competitiveness of the Bulgarian Economy" (2007-2013). This call supported projects enabling the creation of novel, more elaborated products, that increase the technological and innovation potential of Bulgarian small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Partnership with research organisations was considered vital for providing original, state-of-the-art ideas and know-how transfer in order to align Bulgarian products to the European standards and best practices.

Two partnering institutions participated in the project: the developer of BITool ADISS Lab Ltd. – a small software company, coordinating the project, and the Institute of Information and Communication Technologies (IICT), Bulgarian Academy of Sciences (BAS), as a provider of research expertise in information processing.

The software product BITool aims to provide fast and effective analysis of enterprise data by visualisation supported at various levels of detail. Initially data can be collected from various sources like databases or text files; from end user’s perspective data is stored in a large table viewed as a universal relation. BITool can be used as a desktop application or a first step of an Internet service therefore the speed of information processing is essential. The tool is oriented to SMEs that need data analysis but cannot invest in specialised staff and large data warehouse platforms.
